Dancing with Spiders

Remember this tune?  A favorite of mine. 

^

“If you go out in the woods today
You’re sure of a big surprise.
If you go out in the woods today
You’d better go in disguise.

“For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic.”

Presenting a spin on this…

 

Dancing with Spiders

(Sing to The Teddy Bear Picnic tune)

If you stay up tonight, tonight

You’re sure of a big display

Better watch out tonight, tonight

You’re in for a disarray.

 

For every spider that ever was

Will creep and crawl about

Underneath the couch and bed

They’ll play and dance and shout

 

Creepy crawly out they come

Scuffling on teeny tiny feet

Dashing here and there

They are so ready to eat!

 

Going to get ya, yes siree

Hunting you far and near

Black or brown, bitey bite

These you betta fear!

 

Ready now?  Here they come

By ones and  twos and threes

Watch your feet, arms and legs

They sting like swarming bees.

 

Ooops, the sun begins to rise

They suddenly disappear

Tummies full, all tired out

A new day is finally here.

 

Chorus:

If you stay up tonight, tonight

You’re sure of a big display

Better watch out tonight, tonight

You might want to run away!

 

[Written after noting the indoor arrival of neighborhood spiders due to approaching fall weather]

  1. Anne, you are a blessing! The Lord has sent me another friend. I shall return to your blog for further enrichment later, but must get these comments done first. SPiders are unwanted company over here, pretty much. I don’t mess with them if they stay on their side of the wall…outside! Shalom

    Love in Christ,
    Jeanne

  2. We have been watching that same arrival around here, but if staying up is what brings them out, this makes me want to go to bed before supper! 🙂
